Doors at 7. Music at 7:30pm
Andrea Jablonski is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Chicago; this will be her first concert in several years and the first time she is collaborating with Cale Arthur. They will be performing two new compositions for electric bass. The influences that brought you the low end sludge of Rabid Rabbit and the dirge of From Bones now find their place this brand new format. In the second half of the program Jablonski will discuss her artwork, music, and community based activities with Ken Vandermark. (Jablonski photo by glug.)
